that what we are celebrating is not the election or swearing in of a president, but what we are doing is celebrating each other and celebrating this incredible nation that we call home. after we celebrate, let's make sure to work as hard as we can to pass on an america that is worthy not only of our past but also of our future. god bless you guys. i love you. we will see you tomorrow. (applause) >> the president and the first lady the vice president, the second lady seeming chipper after his official swearing in earlier today. this party was a candlelight vigil. it's not exactly a vigil, it's more of a party. there are a lot of people in that room who paid a lot of money for this inauguration and prior to tonight to get barack obama re-elected. to get a flavor of what's going on in the room these are individual and corporate donors. to get tickets to this event if you were an individual if you wanted the washington package in addition to a couple seats to the parade or other items you had to donate 250,000 dollars if you were a corporation you had to donate a million. the packages wen
it that necessarily in your face but he was standing by some things he felt he got elected on but how will it be perceived? some republicans have already said they are not happy. >> he was direct, blunt, and aggressive. this was an address where the president said i won the election, and i am be aggressive in the second term to push my agenda. republicans will not be happy. democrats will be fired up about the idea high could be a bit more aggressive the second term than in the first term. folks on the left are happy he got health care reform done. that he got the stimulus. a lot of democrats believe he did not go hard enough against the republicans in the first time. to become the first president to use the word "gay" in an address or to defend entitlement programs at a time when everyone in washington is talking about debt and deficits, he threw down the gauntlet and made clear, i won the election, i will stand for these following things. he did not go in great detail. he does that next month. he made clear he is coming out where he is and he will come out swinging and he thinks he
that the 2012 election is a definitive test of your proposition. the reason is obama did not have a opponent who presented a clear and strong argument for reagan knight perspective of stronger government, less taxes, less dependency. you know, romney was a good man but he basically ran on the economy, lousy economy, we need a new ceo in washington. it didn't work. i think we will get a good tis of this in 2016. we are going to have the four years of obama's hyper liberalism, the kind of stuff he elucidated and enuns dated yesterday in the inaugural address. and i would say that if our ideology, conservative, small government ideology is correct, it will leave a mess behind. but we will also need as conservatives, republicans if you like, a standard bearer in 2016 who can make the case. and there is not a dearth of them. we have a very strong bench. we have got ryan. we have got rubio. we have got the governors, there is a whole young generation of conservatives who can make the case that will be the test. although i will say that if liberals keep winning elections, then your theory of a fundamen
election year showdown where the president bypassed the senate and put three picks on the national labor relations board, using the recess appointments on january 4, 2012. power the white house continues to defend vociferously today. >> the decision is novel and unprecedented. it contradicts 150 years of practice by democratic and republican administrations. >> except republicans use pro forma sessions to make sure the senate was not really in recess when the president made appointments. g.o.p. senators today hailed the court decision as a mayor victory. >> i think he has been getting ready to exercise a lot of executive overreach. a lot of executive orders. and regulations. try to push the agenda that way. so this really comes at a very, very appropriate time i think. constitution. for the american people. >> white house officials down played it by saying this was just one court and up with case. suit brought by a family owned soft drink business in washington state. channeling the norb demand to enter into a collective bargaining agreement with the labor union. conservatives incyst the
to put it aside and not talk about it in the election and here we are, back with his promise and what was more interesting, too, not only did he make that promise, but you had somebody like barbara boxer, whose the senator from california, big climate person, she gave some details, too, how they intend to pursue this, normally through the epa for a carbon regulation program and thinking of putting in place a carbon tax. >> paul: oh, well, we'll talk a little about that. steve, so is this really a regulatory agenda? i don't think that cap and trade, the old program can pass even a democratic senate. it couldn't the first time when they controlled everything. >> yeah, there's a reason that president obama almost never mentioned the words climate change and cap and trade during the the campaign, paul, because they're political losers, they're big tax increases on workers, on union workers, on manufacturing workers, and so, the democrats have avoided that issue now that they've won this election, they've sort of sprung it on people and i don't believe the votes are there in the united sta
the election season. he went on at a time of deficits being front and center to talk about debt and deficits on capitol hill. he was very aggressive defending entitlement such as social security and medicare and medicaid. in this address, the president signals he believes he has a mandate. he will be aggressive about pushing change in the second term. >>shepard: some of the change, can you make the argument it could happen? republicans are coming around on immigration issues. the polls suggest gay rights issue is taking a turn, as well, right? >>reporter: no question. he was able to pass the health care bill in the first term. the second term, in part, will be about implementing that law that republicans opposed but, obviously, chief justice roberts was the justice that helped decide that, in fact, it is the law of the land. the president, we should note, suggested he is going to reach out to republicans. he started the day at st. john's church across lafayette park, a little prayer service, and the pastor talked about how the pastor in chief in recent days in places like newtown, connecticu
rejectionists. >> we saw in pennsylvania there is so much of the willingness to rig the election. they know they're heading into trouble and it's almost like lebanon. you know? and when i see them doing it, we're never going to be popular again so, we're going to have to rig it so gettysburg address, obama. republicans are going to have to steal elections? that is how bad nbc has gotten that. is their coverage. >> a couple points about this quote, unquote news network. on the gettysburg address, chris matthews has it exactly wrong. just the opposite. gettiesberg address was an attempt at healing the nation's wounds at the end of the civil war. obama's speech, yesterday, was a left wing declaration of war against conservative movement. so it was the opposite. as for the rigging charge this is classic msnbc. going back to 2004 with keith onerman refusing to concede ohio going to bush. this is how bizarre msnbcs now, they're saying this is -- a great conspiracy to rig elections. i don't know what they're talking about. >> oos s-. >> sean: listen this, is an extension of the obama white house, they'
hope when election time comes that you're up for election and they boot you out in the cold. >> scott, there were a bunch of lawmakers who used the aftermath of the hurricane for a photo op. you actually meat a couple of them. what do you have to say to them? >> i met governor cuomo. big phony. he has not said one thing to stick up for the new york people. i hope when election comes, the new york people remember that andrew cuomo did not help us, and they boot him out. and as for our president, shame on you. you went away to hawai'i while i, my neighbors, and the middle class and the victims of sandy, were freezing, had no place to go for the holidays, but you used our tax dollars to take your family away to go play ball, and have a good time, while my family did not get to spend christmas here. it's the first one in ten years that i did not spend christmas in my house. i had to go to my sister's house to easement my kids weren't home mitchell daughter didn't come home. but you, mr. president, went away and got to enjoy yourself and you have lied to the american public. i have asked y
do this in a peaceful, orderly way. no mob, no coop, no insurrection. >> in the u.s., elections and inaugurations are the regular heartbeat of the nation. they have not emphasized the historical significance. they began the address with these words. >> we start today a celebration of freedom. >> the first president bush had the same theme calling it democracy's big day. >> a good place to talk as neighbors and friends. this is a day when the nation is made whole, differences are suspended. >> democrats and republicans side-by-side as they take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution swearing on the bible. others prefer family bible. on sunday he placed hand on the bible from the first lady family. today, he swore on lincoln's bible and that of martin luther king whose birthday is celebrated today. many believe that george washington added a phrase that is not in the official oath itself, saying so help me god. most other presidents chose to receive as president obama did today. >> the oath i have sworn before you today, like one recited by others in this capital, was an oa
, you know, president obama is now won election twice with over 5%, 50% of the vote, which is, you know, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question
at the numbers. 55 democrats, 45 republicans currently. in 2014, 33 seats will be up for re-election. don't go the way of general elections. congressman frost what do you think is going to happen? >> well, first of all, this is a subject i know a fair amount about. i was chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee in 1998, the last time you had the so-called six year itch when the president's party is supposed to lose seats in the sixth year of the president's term. we actually picked up five seats in the house and we broke even in the senate. but what is happening here is that the republican party actually had this same opportunity in 2010 and 2012 and they nominated candidates that were too far to the right and lost some races they shouldn't have lost that happened in missouri and in indiana and in this last election it happened in delaware and colorado and nevada two years before that we will have to see what happens. if the republican party keeps nominating people too far to the right, they may snatch defeat out of jaws of victory once again. >> interesting you brought up t
"the five" thinks about it. this is a moment you predicted on election day what happened. what are your thoughts overall? >> bob: as a progressive, a great populist speech. it would remind me of what taft would have said and huey long would have said. it is a -- for those of us on the left, it was a reaffirming speech. it was one that, where he underscored what he has been saying all along. there is a place for government. government does help a lot of people get places. we don't agree on that obviously, but -- >> dana: do you think that has s what he has been saying all along? if you compare the 2008 speech to this one, it's the same? >> bob: what i would say in this without sour grapes. in 2008 he tried to break across the gridlock and he didn't get anywhere so now he will go alone. >> eric: a lot of people on the right said he thinks he has a mandate because he was re-elected. his speech sounded like i have a mandate for the next term, the next four years. he talked about gay rights and climb change. weeping entitlement off the table. equal pay and immigration. those are things we'll
. >> this was an inaugural address where the president came out said i won the election and i'm going to be aggressive in the second term about pushing my agenda. >> and i think we had a clarifying moment and the president's speech put to rest, put to rest the idea that barack obama is a moderate. barack obama is a liberal. >> i don't think that absolutism, i'm sure the president would say the same, on the part of either party or any politician is helpful in terms of solving problems and obviously, if we're going to move forward we're going to have to find a way to come together to solve these problems. >> now dually reelected, he intends to pursue the course of that liberalism. he's going to pursue it as if he had from the election an enormous mandate. >> when i heard that was a liberal speech, i don't think it was a liberal speech, i think it's a popular speech. >> and the battle lines are clearly drawn and i don't think there's hope of-- barring unforeseen developments, that we'll have the unity that people in washington wished for so long. >> we believe strongly there are areas in common that we c
believes since the re-election, the president has gotten more come bative. in the latest fox poll released shortly before the inauguration, 55% of voters said he has been more confrontationm toward congressional republicans. only 30% said he has been more bipartisan. >> i regret that i didn't hear one word from the president about it's time we all sat down and worked together. an addressed these issues that are confronting the nation. it is what it is. >> white house officials note the president tried for weeks to work out a budget deal with boehner. >> even though - wildly recognized to have been made in good faith and to have represented an effort to meet the republicans halfway, the republicans walked away. >> now boehner's aides note the president warned the speaker if he didn't agree to tax increases and a long-term hi ceiling, the president would campaign against him for the next two years, charging he caused another recession. which is why boehner's aides say anailiation is the right word. >> bret: ed henry live on the north lawn. thank you. what do republicans plan to do about it?
the inauguration i wondered did we elect ta king? john adams suggested george washington be called his most benign hine necessary. congress insisted on a more modest title. the people cheering the president this week acted like he will make everything better. >> climate change. >> what do you think the next four years will be like? >> definitely think it will get better. >> what will he do about immigration? >> this is not the american dream. this is an american nightmare. >> about marijuana? >> a celebratory smokeout now that pot is legal. >> about spending? >> obama 35r9 2. that's our show tonight. >> obama part 2, that's our show. tonight. >> and now "jojohn stossel. >> who was that guy? anyway, this monday, our nation's capital looked like a monarchy looks when a new king is crowned. thousands applaud, cheer acting like subjects worshipping nobility. at a time when america faces unsustainable debt, economic trouble, why all of the pomp. watching i wondered should our capital be called imperial washington? maybe i go too farment senator burasso attended he joins us from washington. my imperial

, george w. bush. another poll shows since president obama was re-elected, just a third of voters think he has been more bipartisan. but the majority, 55% say he's been more confrontational. does this mean nothing can really get done that's meaningful in washington to solve our nation's national debt and help the economy? we have a former white house political director under president george w. bush and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. >> great to be here. >> eric: matt, let me start with you. how do we get here? >> well, you know, i think about the president i served, george w. bush. when he came to office, he really was concerned about trying to if i understand a way to reach across the aisle because clearly bill clinton left the presidency with high numbers. he worked with ted kennedy. he worked with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a

, and professional that morning there's so much of this willingness to win the election by the republicans, they know they're headed into trouble. many like lebanon, take the fences down. okay, we're never going to be popular again so we're going to have to rig it. >> sean: so it's the gettysburg address, obama. republicans are going to have to steal elections. that's how bad nbc's gotten, that's the coverage. >> a couple of points about this quote, unquote news network and this quote, unquote newsman. on the gettysburg address, chris mathews has it it exactly wrong. he has the opposite. the gettysburg address was an attempt at healing of nation' wounds at the end of the civil war. obama's speech yesterday was a left wing declaration of war against the movement. and it was opposite. after the rigging charge, this is classic msnbc. this goes back to 2004 keith olbermann refusing to concede ohio going to bush. i don't think they have it clear the election of 2004 yet. this is how bizarro mn sbc is and now the conspiracy to rig elections, i don't know what they're talking about. >> sean: this is an exte

to put te'o side and not talk about it in the election. here we are back with his promise. and what was more interesting, too, is not only did he make that promise, but you had someone like barbara boxer who is the senator from california, a big climate person, she gave some details, too, about how they intend to pursue. this namely, they are going to go through the e.p.a. to do a big carbon regulation program. they are also thinking of putting in place a carbon tax. >> well, we will talk a little bit about that. steve, so is this a regulatory agenda because i don't think cap and trade, the old program can pass even a democratic senate. it couldn't the first time when they controlled everything. >> yeah, there isra a reason that president obama almost never mentions the words climate change and cap and trade during the campaign, paul, that's because they are political losers. they are big tax increases on workers, on union workers, on manufacturing workers. so the democrats have avoided that issue now that they have won this election. they have sort of sprung it out on people. i sti
of the election results in november, it's time to get over it, stop whining, put your uniform back on, it's time to get back in the game. yeah, obama won a round here and got reelected, we can he not let the country we love go to hell in a hand basket in the meantime. if you don't get engaged right now he's going to win the battle when he wants to transform it into his utopian process. and he's going to bankrupt the country and your constitutional rights. the time for feeling down, sad, depressed, it's over. right now we live in the greatest country in the the world, the country needs you right now, so it's time to engage and i also have a message to elected republicans and conservatives in d.c. it's time to stop fighting among yourselves, tonight, begin uniting. now, obama, he wants you divided. he's wanted that since election day and frankly he's done a good job at that. if you do unite, you have the power, you can vote yes, you can vote no. if you stand u tnited on the principles, you cannot accomplish a thing if you continue to allow obama and the democrats to divide you. my advice to all of

a b grade a good grade for the national rifle association. he has many senators up for election in 2014. he doesn't want to bring gun control votes their opponent can pupil mel them for. i am talking about senator mckargher and mark twakus of montana. they are weary and nervous about stepping into this issue. >> majority leader reed was endorced the national rifle association not in the last election but as you mentioned midterms come upon us very quickly. what does the president actually get do you think? >> i think he has something all of the executive orders he got issued which are relatively mild obviously those will stand. most americans wouldn't have particular objection to them. senator fine stein's bill which if he specifies 150 weapons including shot gurns of all things would be banned i think that has a limited shelf life in the u.s. senate. i think the president will put most of the chips on the background checks. he may get progress there but there's a lot of evidence the existing background check is just a mess. maybe we should have combining a fixing of that with w
and democracy sometimes you win elections sometimes you lose elections. i work very hard but i lost and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes. >> clinton's last day as secretary of state is this friday february 1st. >> the deep freeze across the country is turning more dangerous as the winter storm hits the midwest hard. in eastern iowa the ice is coating roads sending dozens of cars right off. >> in wisconsin you can see the thick snow is falling making it hard for drivers to see and navigate the streets. let's check in with maria molina. she is tracking the storm as it moves east. >> the storm not over with just yet heading out over the northeast. already producing snow across pennsylvania and new york. even freezing rain across mid atlantic early this morning expecting it to be producing travel headaches. there is a little bit of warm air behind it. you will be seeing above that winter weather over to rains across most of the northeast including places like new york city and philadelphia and mid atlantic. we have winter weather advisories in effect
that turned out to be push for innovation no a presidential debate and i think had a bearing on this election. basically they interviewed president obama on september 129, the day after the benghazi attacks and the president said and i think i'm quoting it's too early to tell whether or not this is terror related. this became a real issue in the campaign, when the president retroactively said no i always described it as a terror attack. "60 minutes" had that footage and they did not air it at the time. they did not air it when the debate broke out when the president this a terror attack. they withheld that from the public. i would say that's a direct violation of your duty as a journalist. >> maybe that's why they like going on there. >> alisyn: president obama has said that he likes the format of "60 minutes" he can give longer nuances answers rather than up against a three-minute break. what they are doing is sunday night is very interesting. sitting down with hillary clinton, secretary of state and president obama in first and only joint interview. why would they do that? let's listen to t
much. >> you are welcome. >> shepard: very important election. benjamin netanyahu today claimed victory in the parliamentary elections. it appears his hard line party won a majority by only the narrowest of margins. what that means for the unreasonably frosty relationship for the united states and allies in the middle east remain to be seem. the race was tight enough that the opposing parties may have to form a coalition. in fact, they will have to. prime minister benjamin netanyahu is a noted hawk, especially on iran and a palestinian issues and now moderates could have much more say in the government. they have been pushing for peace talks with the palestinians. >> leland vittert is in tel aviv, what could this mean for the iranian threat? >> >> it could really change the dynamics behind me is prime minister netanyahu's campaign poster in hebrew it says a strong prime minister, a strong israel. the election results lead to you believe this will be anything because strong prime minister. as for a strong israel, the prime minister we saw on the stage tonight giving his victory speech wa
in eastern libya. that was what we were trying to address with the libyans. remember, the election in july in libya brought to victory what we would consider moderates, people who had a very different view of the kind of future certainly than al qaeda or the militants but there is going to be a struggle in this region and the united states has to be as effective in partnering with the non-jihadist whether they fly a black flag or any other flag. >> i understand this but this is pointed out to be affiliated with al qaeda terrorist whose attack and kill united states citizens citizens and other citizens from the united states around the world. did anyone in your department, were they aware of the report and photos prior to and should they have brought this to your attention? >> what i am trying to say congressman, i am well aware there were people claiming to be associated with al qaeda that were attempting to influence militias, attempting to exercise more authority along with a number of other groups that didn't necessarily work under that flag but had the same militant jihadist mentality.
treated the president since he's been elected into office and now reelected. now, half of the republican party doesn't believe the president is the citizen of the country-- >> that's not true, that's not true. >> 49% of republicans-- >> and that's the poll, not everybody believes in-- >> i said 49%, i'm not saying all republicans, but that's a significant amount of republicans and if you don't even believe that he is a legitimate leader of the country that's very difficult divide for him to close to govern everyone. i think when he's trying it make a deal with john boehner and republicans led by eric cantor are walking away from the table, i think that's on the republicans and not necessarily the president. and i agree with angela, it's really not his fault. >> kelly: exactly, angela, you said it wasn't his fault. >> right. >> kelly: and you come into the first term and people on the opposite side our definiting, making sure he's a one term president. >> and mitch mcconnell said that. >> kelly: and like president bush, however, president obama continues to make overtures towards bringing
